the above photo was taken around 2007. The store changed owners in February of 2014. The new owners are calling it the Creston Country Market and Deli.  Excellent food and friendly service, plus a mini-market. If you are like me and must have "Half & Half" for your morning coffee ( or afternoon iced coffee), let me tell you that the milk, etc. is delivered on Wednesdays or Thursdays ! Also, they have on hand some top tier, fancy cakes  and pastries, for $3 per generous serving.  So, if you have a sweet tooth and check out the counter !
